How Are Dentures Made?

Partials and full dentures near you are made from a patient’s dental impressions. Before obtaining these impressions, our dentist in Durham, NC, first performs any prerequisite treatments, e.g., extracting loose or decayed teeth.

Next, the dentist uses dental putty or an intraoral scanner to obtain an impression of your bite. Your dental impressions are then shared with the dental lab, creating custom dentures from quality material. Dentures may be acrylic resin, composite resin, porcelain, acrylic, etc.

Before creating your final dentures, the dental lab makes several wax models for you to try on. These try-ins are opportunities for the patient to point out any discrepancies in the fit so that we can make adjustments in good time.

Once you’re satisfied with the fit, color, shape, and other denture metrics, the dental lab creates your final, custom denture.
